Lyndon Johnson's Political Personality
Doris Kearns analyzes the development of Lyndon Johnson's political personality -- his characteristic ways of acquiring and using power -- and traces the impact of Johnson's personality style on his leadership first as Senate majority leader and then as a president promoting domestic reform and escalating the nation's involvement in Vietnam.

pp. 385-409

American Opinion on the Use of Military Force Abroad
Bruce Russett and Miroslav Nincic report on what public opinion data tell us about the willingness of Americans to use military force to help foreign nations. They find that the current level of support has dropped to that of the period immediately preceding American entry into World War II and that Americans are highly selective about what countries they are willing to defend and under what circumstances.

pp. 411-431

Profit in Not-for-Profit Corporations: The Example of Health Care
Amitai Etzioni and Pamela Doty examine current laws and regulations governing the financial dealings of not-for-profit corporations. They argue that omissions, ambiguities, and loopholes in these laws and regulations make it possible for trustees and staff of not-for-profit corporations to engage in fiscal abuses that bring them unmerited personal profit.

pp. 433-453

The Media and the Presidency: An Exchange Analysis
Michael Baruch Grossman and Francis E. Rourke contend that what has been traditionally characterized as an adversary relationship between the president and the press has been taking more of the form of a mutually beneficial exchange of news for publicity. They also believe that the press has recently been improving its position in the trading relationship that historically has been dominated by the White House.

pp. 455-470

The Constitutional Right to Candidacy
Nicole A. Gordon looks at the extent to which the rights of candidates for elective office have been found to be constitutionally protected. She traces the different theories courts have used to justify invalidation of laws hindering prospective candidates and suggests that the Supreme Court recognize candidacy as a "fundamental" right.

pp. 471-487

The Pennsylvania Origins of the Jackson Movement
Kim T. Phillips discusses the earliest sources of support for Andrew Jackson as a presidential nominee in 1824. She finds that economic discontent in the aftermath of the panic of 1819 was central to the campaign to nominate Jackson, who was seen as a potential reformer of the system of banking and business privilege.
